Miami Healthcare Conference

Lauren Foley is the owner of 309 Productions located in Boston, Massachusetts. We have been friends and our companies have partnered for professional sports events and convention coverage since 2014. In this case 309’s client, MSD, was hosting a healthcare innovation and technology conference. 309 brought on T&T to provide comprehensive coverage throughout the week at the iconic Fontainebleau Hotel.

Their theme for 2018 was “Better Together.” we were tasked with interviewing and compiling positive reflections from MSD employees, vendors and customers in attendance. Pharmaceutical and medical device sales were taking place on the expo floor. There were quality educational sessionezs from the likes of, Dr Javeed Siddiqui the CMO of TeleMed2U. Dr Ezekiel Emanuel who helped draft the Afordable Care Act. Kevin Harrington from ABC’s Shark Tank and Mike Eruzione, the Captain of the 1980 Miracle on Ice olympic hockey team, also took part.

Tried & True’s new Canon C200 worked flawlessly documenting and recording every session. We loved using the built in XLR inputs to get crystal clear audio from each speaker. 309’s new Mavic Pro was the best way to capture aerials in the most unobtrusive way possible on Miami Beach. Of course moving shots were provided by our MoVi M5 rigged with both the Sony A7sii and Canon 5Dmk4 depending on the situation. The above teaser was a quick convention recap we cut together in Adobe Premiere. A longer highlight is forthcoming from 309 later this winter.

Not only does T&T work well with ad agencies and PR firms that need a video production arm. But we enjoy partnering with other production companies to provide thorough and exciting high-quality event coverage.

Orlando Sports Convention

For the fourth year running I returned to The TEAMS Conference & Expo, the world’s leading convention for the sports event industry. After two stints in Vegas and last year in Atlantic City we all met up in Orlando, Florida.

I was again part of the former Schneider Publishing team, now all NorthStar employees. I worked alongside good friends, Javier Mosquera and Jared Wickerham. Octavian Cantilli was added to the mix this year as a local photographer. Highlights were a golf tournament at the Ritz. TEAMS rented out the Harry Potter Hogsmeade section of Universal on Halloween. We filmed at Hogwarts and also rode some rides! Also of note, I met and interviewed the world record holder for the 100 meter dash for centenarian women. She had some spunk!

TEAMS is fun because we make daily recaps that are immediately seen by a room full of dining convention attendees before special speakers present. The below videos are mostly my footage. The first one I edited of the golf tournament and the others were cut by the NorthStar full time videographer/editor, Javier.

Monarch Medical Tech

Monarch Medical Technology organized the first annual user group meeting in mid-October. Industry innovators afrom leading hospitals and networks shared implementation and best practices/ valuable lessons learned from using EndoTool IV and EndoTool SubQ across hospital unites and patient populations.

This conference went in depth on glucose management. Our responsibility was to make the highlight above and to film a number of patient testimonials. Additionally we also filmed a multi-part interview with Dr Patrick Burgess, the inventor of EndoTool®, the wireless, convenient algorithmic blood sugar monitoring and glucose control system .

TEAMS Conference & Expo

TEAMS is a Schneider Publishing produced annual trade show. It is the world’s leading conference and events expo for the sports events industry. I have served SP at over one dozen national events.

Here is the finished piece from 2014 in Las Vegas edited by the intrepid Billie Weiss, one of the best T&T contributors.

Javier Mosquera, a full time SP employee and sometimes T&T contributor completed these additional two pieces from Vegas in 2015 and Atlantic City in 2016 of our footage.

Drew is adept with cutting-edge video technology—including the use of drones and aerial cinematography—to provide perspectives of events that no one has experienced before. With minimal oversight and supervision, Drew has delivered exciting and dynamic edits that absolutely represent our organizational voice. He is highly professional and easy to work with.
